It would help if you provide the actual model number of your Miele dishwasher.

Typical installation instructions are shown in this site.

I don't think you would be putting wood under the legs. Most likely it will be a pair of tracks that are listed in the installation instructions. You could try to get these from the Miele service centre in your area.

Hope this helps unless you can let me have the actual model no. of your dishwasher.

Issue with Lagan dishwasher. Can't get the rear leg to unscrew. Any advice?

if you are trying to level it, you can place a shim or wood block of the proper thickness under that leg then adjust the other 3 to level.

How to level a samsung dishwasher?

Usually the front legs can be adjusted by just turning them. The 1 back leg (Samsungs use a tripod foot support system), is adjusted through a remote screw-type leveler that is located in the center (left-to-right) of the base, just behind the toe-kick panel.

Leveling kenmore elite front loader

  • Place the level on the top of the washing machineicon1.png to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.

    Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.

  • Lift the washericon1.png and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.

  • Loosen the nut that secures the legicon1.png with the wrench.

  • Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.

  • Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.

  • Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.

  • Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.

  • Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.

  • Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.

    My dishwasher was installed, then wood floors added and now the height is only 33 inches. How do I get the old one out and find a new dishwasher that is 33-33 1/4 inches tall?

    Take a sawzall and cut the front legs, pull the dishwasher out until the back legs hit the new wood floor and then cut those legs from the sides. It's your old dishwasher anyway, so who cares if the legs are cut off?

    Wm 2487H. My machine is off balance and shake the house terribly bad. It also has a metalic scraping sound sometimes when the drum spins. I just purchased my LG washer and dryer a couple of months ago. I...

    Starting in November 2008--LG introduced "square door" model washers.
    These washers will (unlike round door models) perform very well on wood floors.
    If the WM2487 washer is on a wood floor--even a tiled wood floor--it will be near impossible to get smooth spin performance.
    Some homeowners have had success by adding two layers of 3/4 inch wood under the washer AND dryer.
    The following steps were taken:
    1) Remove washer & dryer
    2) Cut & remove any floor covering (bare wood)
    3) Locate floor joists with a stud-finder & mark locations at the edge of the flooring--allows finding the joist locations after 3/4 sheet is laid to floor.
    4) Add wood glue to floor
    5) Place 3/4 inch wood sheet to floor & drive screws thru wood into joists (as many scews as deemed necessary to fully & completely compress wood sheet to existing floor
    6) Add wood glue to 1st wood sheet
    7) Place 2nd 3/4 inch wood sheet on top of 1st wood layer and drive screws into floor joists.
    8) Add molding if desired
    9) Re-install washer & dryer and level.
    10) Add one heavy towel into washer tub & close door ( this will mimick an off-center load)
    11) Press power "on" button
    12) Press "Spin Speed" button & select high speed spin option
    13) Press "Start" button
    14) When * 9 minutes remaining * is displayed--use the flat wrenchette that comes with every LG washer to "tweak" the adjustment of the front leveling legs. This will allow for "fine tuning" adjustment of the front leveling leg(s) to eliminate vibration / noise during the spin cycle. The rear leveling legs DO NOT need further adjustment.
    NOTE: Those with pedestals--check the front leveling legs on the washer and on the pedestals (front only) during spin.

    Spin cycle

    Sounds like the counter balance is off on the washer. If you tilt the washer back underneath by the motor should be a large brick like block. Make sure it is fastened to the frame tight and if it is check to see if all the level adjustments on the legs are adjusted properlly to keep it from moving ,banging around when its spins in the spin cycle.

    Many times there are tentions springs under the washer too to adjust the weight make sure one has not come loose.

    Hope this helps
